Are there!  I've just compiled lesstif from the 0.83 archive on
There are dozens of pointer<->integer warnings, dozens of "unused variable"
warnings (even excusing the rcsid defined, but not used warnings), and
a couple of other minor warnings.

The first few pointer<->integer warnings involve computing hash table 
entries based partially on the address of the Widget.  We could make these
go away if we used a long for the index table hash entry

The 0.82 archive from didn't compile at all.  It failed on
../../include/Motif-1.2/Xm/RCUtilsP.h:3: character constant too long.
